Oh hooray, there is a new Internet Meme, just in time to Make the Internet Laugh Again, during this era of gloom and strife and unspeakable bullshit. Mr. Spock is a demon from the not-actually-popular television melodrama Star Trek, which was a cultural contemporary of the Sid & Marty Kroft show H.R. Pufnstuf and The Velvet Underground and Nico and the comeback presidential campaign of Richard Nixon. It was a time just like now, but without anything memorable. That’s why what we have instead of creative culture in the 2010s (social media) has a new fad starring Spock looking unimpressed with whatever anybody is doing — especially Boehner and Obama and the rest of these Captains of the Titanic.
“Illogical,” said Mr. Spock. “Alex Jones said Osama bin Laden died in 1999.”
Why would this unpatriotic devil alien not be impressed by the final launch (in 2011) of a series of low-orbit space gliders built in the 1970s?
Spock is also unimpressed with those inbred bucktoothed prematurely-balding Germanic “royals” in Merry Olde England. [Tumblr]
